A 2nd Amendment for CHINA?Submitted by Dialed-IN on Wed, 01/09/2013 - 13:01
So Im reading my liberty minded friend's heated facebook debate with a first generation Chinese-American.
Comment your thoughts.
TIM: By the way, do you think that the citizens of China should bear arms?
DAVE: Yes I do think Chineese should own guns, China wouldnt get away with a tenth of the shit they do to those people. Just because people are poor or non analogous to the US does not mean they should be denied Lberty. If I could have mailed this guy an AR-15 with a 100rd drum-clip I would have. Those who hammer their swords into plowshares wind up plowing for those who kept their swords.
TIM:I asked you that question to gauge what you know. Dave, I will go easy on you because I am assuming you pulled that last answer out of your ____. (not trying to be mean now bc this is the only expression that fits) and I did not expect you to know the answer.
Before I answer, let me say a few things about my father. As much as I hate him, he is a very intelligent man. He was chosen as the best student in his class to come study in America. I'm sure you know how competitive schools are in China. Besides book smarts, my father also amassed a fortune in his older years when he owned and ran three auto dealerships. So aside from history and politics I learn on my own, I also learn from him.
When we talk about China, you must first really acknowledge what it is to be a humongous, third world, vastly overpopulated country. Please let that sink in. For example, people there use cash because a credit system would never work. There are just too many people and there would be too much fraud and the government will not be able to control that level of crime.
China gets a lot of flack for censorship. But they have it in place to prevent rebellion and ultimately, violence. Violent uprisings are catastrophic. If you were a government official, what would you do? Keep in mind that the masses are uneducated and like all people, they are looking for someone to blame.
When the government tried to alleviate problems, like with the 1 child law, they are criticized like hell. By the way, this law does not apply to farmers or people who can afford more than one child (for example, my aunts and uncles are allowed to have more than one child bc they are upper middle class). The law is only in place to help control the vast, uncontrollable population. Imagine 1.3 billion people. We are 300 million in America and we're wealthy. We are still crazy fucks. Imagine 1.3 billion in a third world setting.
And Dave, you want to give them guns? If you we're the leader of China, do you honestly think that is a good idea? Or do you think that maybe, just maybe, you didn't think your answer through? Bc giving the citizens guns would be disastrous. You are posing your ideals into a situation where they will not work. Just the same, you have made comparisons in your former posts that are simply not analogous.
